Holly L. (irunamuk) reviewed Dealing With People You Can't Stand: How to Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst on
Helpful Score: 2
Excellent book. Written to be understood very easily. Many examples used throughout the book for clarification of teaching. I recommend this book highly for anyone dealing with "office politics" type issues with others.
A MUST on how to deal with the folks who make you the most annoyed. It really works, giving hints on first how to determine the type of the person you are dealing with, and then the way to disarm them using techniques that work!
Do you have to deal with people who intimedate you? Others who waffle about simple decisions? Do you ever get tired of hearing, "That won't work" or "It's not my fault?" Is there a 'sniper' in your office who is trying to undermine you?
The fact is that there are difficult people virtually everywhere that there are people, and they can make your life stressful and unpleasant, and prevent you from acheiving important goals ~ but only if you let them!
